Statement

LORI'S ART BACKGROUND

Lori received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Hawaii, majoring in Graphic Design and minoring in Painting and Photography. Soon after Lori first moved to San Diego in 1984, she began her career as a graphic designer, illustrator, and photographer. Her work at The San Diego Union-Tribune and Jostens Learning Corporation won both local and national awards. Traveling overseas has played a big part in Lori’s growth as an artist. Her passion for intense cultural immersion and exploration of the human experience has acutely shaped her style of painting and point of view. Her years of traveling, working and volunteering on four continents have instilled in her a deep fondness for the crafts of artisans around the world. Lori uses this appreciation along with her photographs and sketches as a source of inspiration for her paintings today.
